Many believers live miserable lives because they believe lies. Lies that they have been told by other people or sometimes people have read something in the Bible and they have come to certain assumptions. Many churches make people believe that if they do not belong to a church and if they do not go to church and if they do not pay tithes then they will end up in hell. That is a LIE. Others are led to believe that if they were once married and divorced and they got married a second time then they have to divorce the second spouse and go back to the first spouse. There are many such lies that people believe and it is all because they listen to people, they don’t listen to Jesus Christ. Many people mean very well. Others enforce their beliefs on other people, on their families, on their spouses, on their children but those things do not bring us closer to Jesus. They do not please Jesus. The reason why people are living under such false beliefs and lies and they are so miserable, separated from God, is because they do not hear from Jesus Christ Himself. They go by what others say, they lean on their own understanding and they believe that if they do certain things that they will be pleasing to God.
Some people believe that they should not get married, they should stay unmarried to be pleasing to God. We cannot please Jesus Christ if we do not hear from Him. If we have no relationship with Jesus Christ all these other things that we do have no meaning, no sense. They just make people miserable. We have to HEAR from Jesus Christ Himself. If we have no relationship with Jesus Christ then nothing else matters. We first have to be right with Jesus. We have to seek Him and hear from Him. It doesn’t matter what other people say.
Many churches will quote you Bible verses and pile guilt on you, force you to do certain things which God does not require of you. We can only know what Jesus Christ requires of us if we HEAR from Jesus Christ Himself. If we need wisdom we must ASK from Jesus. He gives to all men freely. We have to be led by the Holy Spirit, not by our thoughts, what we think and what other people say, or by our interpretation of certain scriptures.
We have to PRAY and ask Jesus to guide us and He will clearly show us His will. Seek the will of God, seek Jesus and He will tell you the truth, He will give you UNDERSTANDING. Don’t look to other people, look to Jesus. Seek Him with all your heart and He will reveal Himself to you. Obey Him and He will give you PEACE. There is only one way to be pleasing to Jesus and that is to hear from Him and to obey Him.
May Jesus bless you.
